First time we visited Orkney and Straigona were 1½ year ago. The treatment we then met were so good that we this year decided to go back again. The treatment even this time was so nice, the room was further improved and the breakfast was really good with Julies all fantastic homemade marmelads. We can really recommend Straigona if you...

We couldn't have picked a better place to stay on our trip to Orkney. Julie and Mike run a beautiful B&B where everything they do is geared towards their guests to make you feel welcome and comfortable. There's an air of relaxed friendliness as soon as you arrive. As first-timers to the islands, we were bowled over by Julie's knowledge... More

A superb B&B in all respects. Julie clearly wants to ensure that her guests get the most out of their stay in Orkney, and was most helpful with pointers on things to do and places to eat. Most wonderfully, she did our laundry! Our room was comfortable, and there was a great variety of breakfast options, with some wonderful home-baked... More

Very excellent b & b. Clean, friendly and well appointed. Ideal for the airport or if you need one nights stop when travelling on to the other islands. Favourite touch was the binocular box in the hall. Will definitely return.

It is like coming home when we are welcomed back to Straigona by Julie and Mike. The rooms are always so comfortable and well-equipped - very welcome after our two tiring flights from the south of England. And so handy for the airport. As soon as we were refreshed we went out for a walk - turn right and walk... More

My wife and I stayed 4 nights at this lovely b and b, it was a great experience. Julie and Mike could not have been more helpful; the house was spotlessly clean, very comfortable, nice bedroom and en suite; great breakfast choice with home baking, preserves and fresh fruit salad. Five minutes from Kirkwall and the airport two minutes. Nothing... More

Beautiful house. Great view of the airport (hardly any noise...). VERY friendly hosts :-) Absolutely DELICIOUS breakfast with a HUGE variety!! Every evening you could tick what you wanted to have the next morning: beans, different eggs, bacon, sausages, mushrooms, tomatoes, kippers, black pudding, FRESH (!) fruit salad, yoghurts, cereals, coffee, teas, and, and, and...! Absolutely recommendable!!!

Julie and Mike were great hosts. The property has stunning views, close to the Airport,easy for car hire and the airport also adds interest to the view but little noise, breakfast was epic with lots of home made treats. The room also had the view, comfortable, roomy and very clean with en suite. A lovely stay. Just ideal staging post... More

We arrived by bike and I don't really see how the hosts could have been more welcoming or accomodating. The place is spotless, the rooms light airy and comfortable. The cooking is delicious and my only regret is we should have had our dinner here too.
